Well, if it should swap the clipboard tracks as well is really a matter of taste. In RC times (right before the release) I really dont want to touch such things anymore, as I might break something else by changing this…
I think this is OK as it is, but maybe it should be made more apparent to the user… Something like a little pop up that says ‘Tracks have been moved since you copied the info to the clipboard’ or something.
I don’t think the clipboard should be affected. The way it is now is a just way, this is us that should be aware of what we are doing while copy/pasting.
If the clipboard should be affected, then it means that the clipboard should always paste the copied data into its corresponding track, while we use copy/paste to move data to another track many times. What about the time you want to copy contents of 3 tracks and copy them into another 3 tracks? Regardless of the change in the sequence of the original tracks, the content should be pasted into new ones AS IT WAS COPIED, it should not be affected by the new sequence of the original tracks.
